This chandelier is stunning. The crystals are real and the unique frame sets them in such a way that they are light and airy and very sparkly. It doesn't look overly rich, just very pretty and I think it will look fantastic installed over dining table - like jewelry for the room. One note is that the wire hooks that hold the hundreds of crystals in place seem a little flimsy. Also, it seems that overstock is new to shipping to Canada, and as such we had a few hiccups in the ordering process, but overstock fixed the problems in the end and we received the chandelier within 3 weeks of placing the initial order.
